A Low-Down On The Most Wearable Ensembles Spotted At Lakme Fashion Week Summer 2016

A long Fashion Week has just come to an end and I’m going to bring you the most chic and wearable attires that were spotted at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer 2016. Since fashion shows are all about elaborate and bold outfits and ones that only look good on the ramp, there are also some which can be worn with much ease and comfort off the ramp. Being someone who follows trends religiously, here’s a lowdown on the ensembles I’d prefer wearing in my daily life too:


Ileana D’cruz walked the ramp for designer Rahul Mishra. She was a thorough treat to the eyes in a turquoise indo-fusion embellished attire.  We not only loved the silver detailing all over the attire, but also, the collar-neck concept. Such an outfit is apt for a wedding party. You can team some delicate hair accessories as there is no room for any other kind of jewellery here. You can finish the look with white pumps or I’d suggest even orange pumps would work well as they’d add quirkiness to your attire.


The gorgeous diva Kareena Kapoor Khan closed the show for ace designer Rohit Bal. She looked absolutely flawless on the ramp and Rohit could not have had a better showstopper than the beautiful begum for his show. Dressed in an embroidered skirt and full-sleeves blouse, Kareena has given many to-be brides out there a new take on wedding outfits.


Arjun Kapoor was the show-stopper for Manish Malhotra and boy he made us drool over him as he walked the ramp dressed in a chic ethnic attire. Arjun worked a navy blue kurta-patiala set with a silver jacket and blue dupatta. He finished his look with black formal shoes. Men, please take a note of how you can ditch the usual kurta-patiala for a more stylish look for your next traditional occasion.

Sonakshi Sinha closed the show for designer Anita Dongre. Dressed in a blue embroidered skirt with a white collar-neck blouse, the actress looked vibrant on the ramp. This Anita Dongre outfit looks so comfy and stylish, one can easily pull it off for a Sangeet or Mehendi ceremony. Team it with some statement jewelley, precisely a delicate maatha-patti and you’re good to go!


Here’s another one from Anita Dongre’s collection. This peach printed skirt and cape set is all you need for a summer wedding. Team it with a pretty head-gear or some quirky rings to accessorize this beautiful outfit. The model here is seen wearing a white bralette, but if you’re game for experimenting, you can even team your attire with a bright orange or a light blue bralette.


The handsome hunk Siddharth Malhotra walked the ramp for designer Kunal Rawal. The actor got all the girls swooning over him as he made an appearance in a stylish ethnic attire. He worked his straight-fit white pants with a creamish kurta and added a grey sleeveless jacket to finish his ethnic look. We think Sid could’ve experimented with his shoes. Some kind of traditional juttis would’ve complemented his outfit perfectly well.

Debashri Samanta.jpg

Designer Debashri Samanta too showcased her collection at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer 2016 and this blue printed number is our favourite from the lot. This indo-western outfit is so breezy and comfy that we cannot wait to get our hands on it. A perfect summer attire, MUST say! The model here has finished her look with a pair of traditional juttis but an alternative could be some solid color strappy flats. Color blocking in summers is always a great option!

Farah Sanjana.jpg

This one-shoulder white gown with embroidery details by Farah Sanjana is apt for a day look. You can team this pretty attire with some hot pink accessories and a pair of solid color stilettos. This year’s summer collection is giving us so much inspiration!


Gen Next’s take on white-on-white is absolutely stunning. This model works a pair of white skinnies with a white quirky tee and finishes the look with a blue box sling. This outfit is so classy, we can easily pull it off on a regular day.

Manish Malhotra.jpg

I’ve always been a big fan of Manish Malhotra’s collection. His prints and his idea of style is so peculiar and very hatke from the rest of the designers. And that’s what I love about him. This model here is wearing a Manish Malhotra saree. We love everything about this saree, from the mix of colors to the style of draping. Kudos to the ace designer for creating such unique designs.


Masaba Gupta has created a perfect beach-wear with this orange printed deep-plunging dress. The model here works this pretty outfit with fringe earrings and white wedges. What you could also do is team it with a floral headband and sport shoes for a more sporty look!

Monisha Jaising.jpg

Monisha Jaising has designed a perfect summer outfit for us. This model here is seen wearing a pretty pair of brown embroidered shorts that she works with a light-blue stripe shirt and finishes the look with white sport shoes. An alternative could be a white tank or an off-shoulder top in place of a blue strip shirt.


Payal Singhal showcased a very printastic collection at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer 2016. This model here shows us how to team a tube jumpsuit with a pretty cape with aplomb. We love the prints here. In place of the floral shoes, even a pair of black gladiators could have worked!

Payal Singhal.jpg

Here’s another one from Payal Singhal’s collection. This outfit is so apt for a day wedding. A blue embroidered crop-blouse teamed with a printed flowy skirt is such a perfect combination. We are totally in awe of Payal’s creation!

You can tell me your favourites from the Fashion Week gone by!
